Hi all,

Im doing the sound design for a short film that primarily involves fighting. I'm looking to buy a sound effects pack like this, http://arrowheadaudiosfx.com/AAS-004.html. Except that im looking for more of a compilation of 'fighting impact' sounds, like a punch or kick to the gut kinda thing. So im looking for more of a pack/compilation rather than those single sounds. Does anyone have a recommendation?

Thanks!

I listened to the sample and felt that it wasnt really suitable. But then i went back and gave it another listen and the sounds of the rod smacking the cabbage actually could work! Thanks for the renewed sense of hope! –  idriszee May 10 '12 at 8:38

if you are a sound editor it is not about one sound, later a few elements for the hit, and a few slightly later for decay and a swish before the hit for the arm movement... careful syncing & layering is what makes a sound fit picture & be interesting/characterful –  user49 May 11 '12 at 7:45
    
layer not later –  user49 May 11 '12 at 21:44

Even if you get a really awesome sound effects pack, I wouldn't recommend using them as they come. You should try layering different and apparently unrelated sounds to get just the right sound effects. That said, it doesn't make a great difference what you use as starting point.
